Rick,

I always "pillar" box the 4:3 materials so I can use them in 16:9 productions, this ensures full frame and minimal resizing, you can see this in use on the fine film "In the Shadow of the Moon", which pillar-boxed their NASA archival footage to maintain the integrity of the compositions.

Best Regards...

Yes, this probably presents 4:3 material with the greatest integrity, but our stock footage clients working in HD don't like it that way -- they want full-frame even if it results in loss of some of the image. I am therefore deciding not to decide at present.
